    She pushed the boxes together, making a makeshift table to eat at for the four of them. She carefully sectioned out the protein bars, making sure everyone got their fair share. In the middle of the boxes she put the flashlight. It shone up on the walls and cascaded a dim brightness around them. It was a centerpiece, of sorts. At least, it would do.

    The card sat at her bedside, daring her to pick it up in all it’s garish cheerfulness. She hadn’t read it. She couldn’t. It wasn’t supposed to be there.
